Reducing your electric bill

Do you use the dishwasher?  I try to wash the dishes by hand as often as I can.  Plus I use the same cup all day long so therefore less to wash.  In winter I love running a hot sink of water for my hands as well.  I tested the dishwasher the other day and it took 20 watts.  If my calculations are correct I think it cost me $2.60 each time I use it.  Which is around $78 a month.  OMG.  Off course you still are using power to run the sink to do the dishes but you are still saving around $50 a month by doing the dishes by hand!!!  How about you do the dishes by hand once and a while plus work out how much it is costing you?
